"Music is the passion of my soul." —Thomas Jefferson


Curated by violinist Paul Woodiel, the New England premiere of “Music at Thomas Jefferson's Monticello” features what might have been heard after-hours in the Charlottesville, Virginia home of the third U.S. president (the European concert music of Corelli, Handel, Haydn, and Mozart), as well as in the slaves' quarters (African American and European American traditional musics). This concert features performances by singer, guitarist and banjo player Jerron "Blind Boy" Paxton, Dennis James on glass harmonica, singer Jennifer Hope Wills, violinists Robert Mealy and Mazz Swift, cellist Katie Rietman, Christopher Layer on bagpipes and flutes, and Wesleyan Professor of Music Neely Bruce on harpsichord. A Crowell Concert Series event presented by the Music Department and the Center for the Arts.


There will be a pre-concert talk at 7:15pm by Wesleyan Professor of Music Neely Bruce.
